This is a summary of the Heroine archetypes from ''The Complete Writer's Guide to Heroes & Heroines: Sixteen Master Archetypes'' (see the footnote on the index page, HeroesAndHeroines). You can also find the Hero archetypes on RomanceGenreHeroes. Most of the Heroines are female versions of the Heroes.

Also listed are the villainous versions of the Hero archetypes; these come from the website of one of the authors (again, see the footnote on the [[HeroesAndHeroines index page]]).

* '''The Librarian:''' Samantha Carter from Stargate: SG-1 would probably count, despite being more action-y than most. The book also notes Diane from ''Cheers'' and Scully from ''The X-Files''. Belle, from the film of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' counts as well. Adele Mundy from the Republic of Cinnibar series. Twilight Sparkle from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''.

** One episode of ''CriminalMinds'' had a girl who appeared to be an abuse victim of her serial-killing boyfriend, but was later revealed to be the serial killer in charge of the whole mess. This kind of villain doesn't count, since she ''wants'' to do the crime and isn't just going along with the perps.

#A girl can be a DistressedDamsel, a child-like innocent who needs to be protected but yet has great strength of will, but a guy is never like this. (But we knew this one already, right?)
